Does someone have a case of the Mondays? We understand. Going back to work sucks but while you probably had the weekend off, Slashfilm hasn’t stopped working. If you can call watching movies non-stop working.
Myself, Peter Sciretta and David Chen have been all over Park City Utah at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival which continues through next Sunday. We’ve reviewed over a dozen movies, quested for tickets, done video blogs and much more. Did you miss any of the coverage? No worries. We’ve created this convenient rundown of everything we’d published so far including reviews of the recently acquired films Project Nim and Margin Call, hidden gems like Win Win and Bellflower and, of course, all the Red State coverage you can handle.
Later today, be on the look out for reviews of My Idiot Brother, Like Crazy, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold and more. But until then, see the roundup of all our coverage below:

Between movies, David was walking around Park City talking to movie fans. Here’s what they had to say.
